Personal fave of mine is from the Golden Hall show, 11/24/79 (the one with the monster China/Rider). The whole thing smokes, but my favorite part is in the main jam where Jerry and Brent get into a lick-trading session that really shows how little time it took for Jerry to really click with the "new" keyboard player and feed off him, something that really re-energized his playing. Beautiful stuff there. Love it.

After a quick review, I'd also have to throw in 4/2/73 from the Boston Garden. Smokin' licks from Jerry (only drawback is some cat-strangling by Donna). 6/16/74 Des Moines has some nice groove-diggin' by Jerr, this one also smokes (but, again, some cats pay the price)

for some reason i have a predilection for 8/27 over 9/28.. The 76 versions are monsters though too.. I like how jerry's lead style became super mellow, yet ferocious

9/28/72...the entire show is fabulous. I'd include it in my top 10, & if it's not in my top 5 it's definitely my #6.

Sorry, you asked about GSET---you won't be let down with this performance. Here again, I'll say that just about every song the GD played live was played at it's "best" within the 1st 1-4 years of it's introduction, and GSET had only been in rotation for a little more than a year & a half at this point.

All I can do is reiterate what Treeap just said:

9/28/72 is THE GREATEST G-SET the Grateful Dead ever played, and that's among many, many great ones.

Jerry weaves the St. Stephen riff into the major part of the jam section, and it will just blow your mind.

Go. Now. Listen.
